Give us, Lord, a bit o' sun,
A bit o' work, and a bit o' fun;
Give us all in the struggle and splutter,
Our daily bread and a bit o' butter
Give us, Lord, a chance to be
Our goodly best, brave, wise, and free,
Our goodly best for ourselves and others,
Till all men learn to live as brothers.
More verses about Brothers and Brotherhood:
Then let us pray that come it may,-
As come it will for a' that, -
That man to man, the world o’er,
Shall brothers be for a’ that
I sought a soul,
But my soul I could not see.
I sought my God,
But my God eluded me.
I sought my brother,
And I found all three.
Author: Denis Martindale
O Lord, bless my brother in Christ,
For You are good and just,
You know all that is sacrificed
By those You come to trust...
And since my brother proves he cares
In everything he does,
I pray that You will hear his prayers
Because he loves Jesus...
So, Lord, anoint Your servant now,
Grant him Your blessings, too,
Such that Your Spirit can allow
More blessings to come through...
O Lord, just think what could be done
To save lost souls from Hell...
I pray You use this precious son,
He wants to serve You well!
Take Up Thy Cross
Charles William Everest
Take up thy cross, the Saviour said,
If thou wouldst My disciple be;
Deny thyself, the world forsake,
And humbly follow after Me.
Take up thy cross; let not its weight
Fill thy weak soul with vain alarm;
His strength shall bear thy spirit up,
And brace thy heart, and nerve thine arm.
Take up thy cross, nor heed the shame,
Nor let thy foolish pride rebel;
The Lord for thee the cross endured
To save thy soul from death and hell.
Take up thy cross, then, in His strength,
And calmly every danger brave;
'Twill guide thee to a better home,
And lead to victory o'er the grave.
Take up thy cross, and follow Christ,
Nor think till death to lay it down;
For only he who bears the cross
May hope to wear the glorious crown.
Help Me Lord!

T’was not the night, the long, long night; I knew that we must part,
But oh, the pain! The deep, deep pain that stirred within my heart.
It’s been so long since this began, so many tears I’ve shed,
So often I have bared my soul, “Let it be me instead!"
To watch him suffer, see his pain for which there was no cure,
I prayed for guidance as I asked, “How long must he endure?"
“God, You’re the healer of mankind, the keeper of his soul,
Could You not touch him with Your power? Restore him? Make him whole?"
Dear God, I’m pleading, give me peace, help me to understand,
Your loving kindness will come through, that our whole life is planned.
I cannot see the path ahead, I wander in a daze,
I reach my hand out for Your love, I want to give You praise.
Oh, precious Lord, give me the strength to trust, to let You guide,
What e’re the outcome of Your plan, walk closely by my side.

When trouble comes, focus on God's ability to care for you.
Let a man set his heart only on doing the will of God and he is instantly free.

You face your greatest opposition when your closest to your biggest miracle.
Your life has purpose.
Your story is important.
Your dreams count.
Your voice matters.
You were born to make an impact.
If you come to Christ and say, "Lord, here I am. Forgive me of my sin," He can transform you and change you.
He can take your mistakes and your sins, turn them around, and even use them for His glory.
